The Business of Photography Workshop™

2015 dates announced soon!

Please put your name on our newsletter list here to get the latest information about upcoming workshops and specials.

Hosted by photographers Jalene Taylor and Kristin Brown, The Business of Photography Workshop™ is an all-day workshop focusing on understanding and applying the principles that make a small, creative business successful. This workshop will help you overcome fears in business, streamline and organize your business to become more profitable, and live a balanced life in the process. We both agree that many creative businesses struggle with many of the things required to be run a successful business. While you may have all the talent and product beautiful work, it takes business sense to know how to turn that talent into profit. We’ve teamed up since we both have strengths and expertise in different areas.
We knew we could combine efforts to really help others on their path to operating a successful small business.

“The best thing I got from the workshop was empowerment!… I feel so much more prepared to face my future as a photographer!” -April 2013 Workshop Attendee

Who Should Come?

While our experience is in wedding photography, the business principles we’ll be discussing will apply to anyone with a creative small business. This workshop will specifically help those who:
  • want to take their business full-time
  • are photographing full-time but feel overwhelmed keeping up with the business side of things
  • feel stuck and want to take their business to the next level
  • are passionate about what they do and are willing to put in the time and effort into growing a sustainable business

In this workshop we will be focusing solely on the business of photography. If you’re looking for help with the technical aspect of photography, Jalene offers one-on-one mentoring here.
